  1. Dunning's FB was actually around 92-93, per raBBit: Brian Bilek‏ @BrianBilek_ Following More It's been tossed around that Dunning was throwing 96-97 this morning. That's not the case. He was 92-93. #WhiteSox
  2. As ol' JR used to say...Business has just picked up.
  3. JJ Cooper ‏@jjcoop36 2h2 hours ago My quick summation of Alec Hansen's night. He has come a LONG way in the last few months. Lot of work to go but significant strides. JJ Cooper ‏@jjcoop36 2h2 hours ago Dominating in the Pioneer League is not a massive feat for a college drafted but the arm is quick and he has feel for a slider. JJ Cooper ‏@jjcoop36 3h3 hours ago Much like he did at times in college Hansen has more feel for his breaking ball than his fastball. Back to back strikeouts. JJ Cooper ‏@jjcoop36 4h4 hours ago Alec Hansen on the mound for the @Intimidators tonight. Follow @jnorris427, @mlananna and @KyleAGlaser for updates. Michael Lananna ‏@mlananna 3h3 hours ago Some tilt on this 83 mph slider from Alec Hansen. Kyle GlaserVerified account ‏@KyleAGlaser 4h4 hours ago Alec Hansen 91-94 FB, 84 SL, 77 CB, 84 CH in first inning. Staying on line to plate, when missing it's mostly high-low, not in-out #WhiteSox Michael Lananna ‏@mlananna 4h4 hours ago 94 mph heat from White Sox 2nd rounder and Oklahoma alum Alec Hansen. 1 K in the first. Kyle GlaserVerified account ‏@KyleAGlaser 3h3 hours ago Alec Hansen is thru 5, 5 hits and 3 runs allowed, 2 BB, 6 K. Slider has been his best pitch, main prob has been locating vs. lefties Kyle GlaserVerified account ‏@KyleAGlaser 3h3 hours ago Alec Hansen's stuff has dropped here around the 70 pitch mark in the 4th. FB 90-92 now, CB losing bite, control shakier #WhiteSox JJ Cooper ‏@jjcoop36 5h5 hours ago The BA staff is out in force for Alec Hansen and @Intimidators tonight. Kyle GlaserVerified account ‏@KyleAGlaser 2h2 hours ago Final thoughts on Alec Hansen: FB good at 93, loses command at 95, SL excellent at times, 82-86, needs consistent third pitch #WhiteSox https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&ver...en&src=typd
  4. At this point, if the Rangers wanted Abreu and Quintana for a package surrounding Profar and Dillon Tate, I might listen.

    7/14 Games

    QUOTE (BaseballNick @ Jul 14, 2016 -> 09:55 PM) Fantastic outing for Ranaudo: 8IP, 3H, 0ER, 1BB, 4K. Guererro: 6IP, 4H, 0ER, 2BB, 5K. Courtney Hawkins is hitting .209 with a .600 OPS as a 22 year old in AA. I'm not going to say he's done, but that's certainly not encouraging. AZL Sox had four triples tonight in Game 1 of their double header. Nunez, Curbello, Remillard and Reyes all tripled. Three hits in his last 45 is NOT encouraging at all. After that hot streak he experienced in June, I was starting to think he's coming around AA pitching. Maybe a change of scenery will do him some good.

    7/14 Games

    Before tonight's game...Thaddius Lowry's last 10 games at Winston Salem High A: 4-3 W/;, 3.79 ERA, 59.1 IP, 55 hits allowed, 10 walks, 42 strikeouts. Tonight's game: ND, 6.1 IP, 8 hits allowed, 3 runs allowed, 2 earned; 1 walk, 5 strikeouts. Probably in line for a promotion to AA near the end of this year. Someone to keep an eye on the 5th round pick from 2013. Tall RHP. #22 on Future Sox's preseason rankings for 2016. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=m...tching/2016/ALL http://www.chicagonow.com/future-sox/thaddius-lowry/

  8. Adams was pitching against Boston's A team with Top 50 prospects Rafael Devers (who homered), Andrew Benintendi (last year's top pick for Boston) and Yoan Moncada. Not an easy thing for Adams to get through. Adams did give up 10 hits, so just not his day, IMHO.
  9. Zangari for sure now. Batters that I'm following: Adolfo, Hawkins, Zangari, Alfaro Pitchers: Jordan Guerrero and Andre Wheeler.
  10. Hmmmm..... Eating: Pizza = Gino's East, Giordano's, Lou Malnati's Italian Beef and Sausage: Al's #1 on Taylor St near UIC...also go across the street and stop by Mario's Italian Lemonade Stand for some Italian Ice. Portillo's is also a good place to visit. Seafood/Shrimp: Lawrence Fisheries at 2120 South Canal St. Get the 1-pound fried shrimp. You'll thank me later. Entertainment: Lake Shore Drive has the Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum of Natural History, and on the south side is the Museum of Science and Industry just off LSD.
  11. Sorry if this has been posted already... Clip of Marko Dano being selected by CBJ in the 2013 Draft: Dano at the 2013 WJCs: Wait until Marian Hossa gets this kid and mentors him, just like he did with Saad, especially on the forecheck. Dano's 14/15 Highlights: Kid is not afraid to play in traffic.
  12. Dan Hayes ‏@CSNHayes 2h2 hours ago All is well with Erik Johnson. #WhiteSox are skipping him, giving him extra rest. 4 retweets 6 favorites Reply Retweet4 Favorite6 More
  13. FutureSox.com @FutureSox Matt Davidson’s last 9 games: .342/.439/.600 with 3 HR, 6 BB, 13 K in 41 PA. Strangely just 4 RBI during that stretch, but hot at the plate
  14. Here's an updated list per CBS Sports Local Chicago:
  15. If Kevan keeps improving his craft, esp from what I read his defense, then you can bet he'll be called up. Offensively, he's done good at every stop.
  16. White Sox's blurb about picks #4-6 today. Pretty good stuff. Erwin: Stephens: Zangari:
  17. QUOTE (Chicago White Sox @ Jun 9, 2015 -> 08:23 PM) I'm really, really worried that not scoring with the bases loaded and no outs is going to come back to haunt us tonight. We may not get another three hits off Keuchel the rest of the game, let alone in one inning. For the love of God, prove me wrong offense. I'd much rather look like a pouty douche than lose a one run game. Not to bring up a sore subject, but kind of like all of those prime scoring chances the Blackhawks had Monday night. Yep.
  18. Hmmm....Mitchell Traver is still available from TCU..... http://m.mlb.com/video/topic/67565098/v856...college-pitcher
  19. Good picks so far for the Sox in my opinion. I know I was on the Stephenson bus, but the Fulmer pick does make the most sense after I read articles on FanGraphs, Chicago Now (Future Sox) and of course this site! Intrigued with the selections of Stephens, Zangari (as a 1b) and Hickman (starter or bullpen?), but overall, good stuff to help keep building the farm system. Don't know if this has been already posted, but one more blurb about Fulmer from Jim Callis of MLB.Com:
  20. Trey with 3 more RBIs today, 35 for the year so far. Who says the Sox can't develop hitters?
  21. So.....21 years old now and at AA Birmingham. So far this year... AVG .251 OBP .318 SLG .425 OPS .743 Games played 46 At Bats 179 Strikeouts 63 (K rate is at 35% this year, near his minor league lifetime avg.) Walks 14 (has not been intentionally walked...has only 2 in his minor league lifetime) Hits 76 Doubles 9 Triples 2 Home Runs 6 Train Boxcar Fatalities 1 RBI 30 Runs Scored 22
  22. I love what I have been reading about Tyler Jay and Carson Fulmer. Dillon Tate as well. Maybe it's my way of thinking, but I would love the Sox to just pick Tyler Stephenson just to give them a challenge to develop this guy, at a premium position, to prove doubters wrong that they can develop big league talented hitters consistently. The Sox DID help to develop hitters like Thomas, Ventura, Baines, Ray Durham, Aaron Rowand, Joe Crede...you could also say to some small degree that they have helped to develop Jose Abreu and Alexei Ramirez. I realize that the track record of the White Sox isn't great at all regarding developing hitters. But, if you have this kind of talent at a premium position to select, why not? If the Sox have their choice of Jay, Fulmer, Tate, Stephenson, or even Benintendi; that will make my day. I would personally be ecstatic if they chose Stephenson, but I understand it is, and should be, best player available on their draft board.
  23. Why was Cleuluis Rondon hitting 5th in today's lineup?!? Can someone explain this to me?
